After a taxing mountain climb yesterday, today’s social ride was flat. Charlie, Melissa, and I rode at a conversational pace. Charlie was back on his bike for the first time in a few weeks, while Melissa and I were working out the lactic acid from yesterday.

Fresh off his move, Charlie set up his trainer about an hour prior to tonight’s ride. He could not find his wireless headphones, so he was wired into the Discord conversation.

Charlie and Melissa chatted about skiing. After talking about going down a mountain, we spoke about going up the Alpe du Zwift yesterday. It was a challenging ride. Melissa and I rode today on our hill climb set up since we both forgot to change bikes!

We also chatted about the Massochistah, which shifted from April to May. The weather may be slightly different.

In total, we rode 20 miles with 167 feet of climbing.
